We are swimming in the oceans of Allāh’s ﷻ Mightiness. He ﷻ is very close and He ﷻ knows the whisperings of our egos. In this time, most people are controlled by their ego. They even order you to follow it. People have become donkeys of their egos. Allāh ﷻ and Prophet ﷺ are saying, you ride your ego instead.
